After the end of The Good Wife and his return to Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, we haven’t heard much from Matt Czuchry. According to Variety, Matt will be filming the new Fox medical pilot, The Resident.
Matt has signed onto the pilot to play Conrad Hawkins, a “cocky third-year resident at Kings County Hospital.” The series is set to follow “an idealistic young doctor who begins his first day under the supervision of a tough, brilliant senior resident who pulls the curtain back on all of the good and evil in modern day medicine. Lives may be saved or lost, but expectations will always be shattered.” So, kind of a darker Grey’s Anatomy, perhaps?
According to some digging, Matt is set to portray the “tough senior resident,” with co-star Manish Dayal as Devon Pradesh, the “idealistic young doctor.” Also signed onto the pilot so far are Bruce Greenwood as Dr. Soloman Bell and Shaunettye Renee Wilson as Mina Okafor.
The Resident comes from Amy Holden Jones, Hayley Schore and Roshan Sethi.
